A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my alight and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The bLord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 dThough an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
4 eOne thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may fdwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the 2beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
5 For gin the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall hset me high upon a rock.
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of 4joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
9 jDo not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation.
10 kWhen my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.
11 lTeach me Your way, O Lord,
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
For mfalse witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
nIn the land of the living.
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Lifted up in honor
Wait in faith
